At a glance

If you’re looking to combine two resorts in the Maldives, this our exclusive luxury choice. You can easily transfer from one resort to the next via speedboat or seaplane. Both resorts are 45-minutes away from Male by seaplane. Both are premium luxury so this is your chance to experience the best of the best in the Maldives.

Vella cost around $200 million to bring to life. It’s a popular destination for luxury honeymoons in the Maldives, and it’s also favoured by celebrities seeking privacy – it’s a very intimate resort.

JOALI was founded in 2018 by entrepreneur Esin Güral Argat. It takes luxury and style to the next level, not by adding ever more elaborate underwater restaurants, but by by providing world-class cuisine (no lie) and accommodation. One of JOALI’s USPs is its underwater coral sculpture garden.

More Information

The Maldives is one of our most popular destinations for LGBTQ+ travellers. Whilst homosexuality is illegal in the country, and most queer people hide their identity, the reality for travellers is much different. The staff and management of most resorts are open-minded and welcoming to all guests regardless of gender or sexual identity. Many destinations will also offer symbolic same-sex marriage ceremonies.

Days 1-5: Velaa Private Island

Velaa Private Island is a classic Maldivian luxury resort. It’s surrounded by some of the best snorkelling and diving sites in the Maldives. As well as the stunning beaches you expect from the Maldives, Velaa also has a sprawling golf course designed by Jose Maria Olazabal.

Velaa Private Island embodies the best of Maldivian understated luxury. The service is excellent – the staff have been chosen from the Maldives’ finest luxury resorts, meaning you get the best of the best. All of the villas come with private pools and sprawling terraces. The food options and the wine lists are among the finest in the Maldives.

Days 1-5: Velaa Private Island

JOALI

Set on the stunning private island of Muravandhoo, JOALI is another premium luxury resort you can easily access from Velaa. The once deserted island in the Raa Atoll underwent a huge transformation when this resort was built. It’s a supremely cool place with world-class service. You’ll have your own ‘jadugar’ (Urdu for ‘magician’) to take care of your every need.

Quite often it’s the little details that elevate the Maldives’ most exclusive resorts. All of the thatched-roof villas come with private infinity pools. In terms of style, few resorts in the Maldives come close. This is also a resort that puts conservation at the heart of everything it does. You can explore the deep with the in-house marine biologists if you’d like to discover the Maldives’ diverse natural wonders.
